One of the best hotels in Germany: that is the Bareiss in Baiersbronn in the Black Forest – and not just since it was named “Best Resort in Europe 2012”. Founded as the Kurhotel Mitteltal by Hermine Bareiss in 1951, and managed by Hermann Bareiss since 1973, the hotel still sets standards. It masters a very special type of hospitality, characterised by luxury, a gourmet culture, comfort and well-being – and ever-new holiday experiences for our older and younger guests.
But who is this Hermann Bareiss, the man whose visionary power made this hotel what it is?
H.P.O. Breuer has known Hermann Bareiss for many years. Together they look back on past decades and risk a glance into the future. Hermann Bareiss talks about his life – both humorously and with depth – discusses the hotel’s history, and grants us a look at his family photo album. This has resulted in a book that also brings a slice of contemporary German history to life.
“Bareiss” is a tribute to Hermann Bareiss, the gentleman of the German hotel industry. Articles by Alain Ducasse, Eckart Witzigmann, Innegrit Volkhardt, Günther H. Oettinger and other contemporaries round out the book.
